Vermont: 2018 Legislative Session Convenes

This week, the Vermont General Assembly convenes its 2018 legislative session.  As in 2017, we will see gun control advocates pushing for policies to restrict the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners.  It is vital that gun owners and sportsmen across the Green Mountain State stay actively involved throughout 2018.

Anti-gun groups and legislators are aggressively pushing for "universal" background checks, which do nothing to improve public safety.  Their agenda also includes dangerous legislation disguised as "domestic violence" prevention that does nothing more than weaken due process.  Vermont is one of the safest states in the country and these efforts being led by out-of-state gun control groups are a solution in search of a problem.

Your NRA will keep you updated on the status of important legislation in addition to providing a simple and convenient way to contact elected officials.  To help ensure success in 2018, please continue to check www.NRAILA.org and your email inbox for alerts on the latest action items.
